Welcome to the City of Chicago Online Business License Renewal System. This service allows you to renew business license(s)
To begin the license renewal process, or check the status of a license for which you have filed a renewal application, please
enter your account number and personal identification number (PIN) below.
Things to consider before you renew:
- If you have changed your business legal entity or owners/officers, you are required to
report these changes to the City within 30 days. These changes should be filed before
- If you have changed your location, do not renew your current license. Licenses are not
transferable. You will need to file a new application.
- To pay by credit card, you must have a valid MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover card.
(Please note: the maximum online credit card payment is limited to $25,000.)
- To pay by electronic check, you must have a valid checking account. There is no
payment limit for transactions that use a business checking account.
